I would love to see getting the ring on with video!

I had to laugh at the typo above the photo of the shrug. It said you will look "goof" and feel even better!

Ha, great catch! The pattern is now updated. Thanks - Julia from FaveCrafst

How is 31 sts going to go around anyone, I've made the pattern to row 5 and there is no way it will fit even a small size did you leave out some sts or increases?

My first inclination is to say that 31 stitches is the width... not the length. You are working this as a flat rectangle, so I'm sure you could repeat the row pattern until it is long enough to go around your shoulders and chest.

How do you put this shrug on? Does the ring open or do you put it over your head?

Looks like over your head, a pull over. I might have to make my own pattern on this just give me a good idea.
